Another VLCC has been involved in a drone attack in the Middle East, a week after an Eastern Pacific Shipping vessel was struck by a projectile.

Houthi rebels attacked the al-Dhabba oil terminal in Hadhramaut province on Monday, according to both the group and Yemen’s internationally recognised government.

The 320,500-dwt VLCC Pratika (ex-Maran Andromeda, built 2005) was at the al-Shihr port to load crude at the time.
